Agnus cactus and PCOS


Hi there I'm new to this and if I dont gett his out then I'm going to go mad. I was told that I have PCOS November last year and havie been ttc for just over a year now. After having my scane in Feb this year my doc put me on met 500mg twice a day and thats that as people would say. So I started doing some looking online for other things that could help me get that that we all deserve to see. I came a cross agnus cactus online so I went to holland and barett and got some. But from what I've read online you should take it at the begining of your cycle. But there is a problem with that fact I haven't had a cycle since July this year.

Any help

hey I have PCOS too- do you temp? thought it was a load of rubbish but started it this 'month!" my last period was 6 1/2 weeks ago but i can tell of my temps that i did ov (wooooo) and am now 10 dpo. the fact we only BD once around that time ( i had given up with such a long cycle) i don't think anything will append but i do feel i know where i am. i am on met too. i do suggest the temping as then you can determine where the end of your first 'half' is! i haven't tried the AC yet as finished BCP and want to leave my body drug free for a bit x

I don't do the temp thing as I always froget to do it. But I know I haven't O for a long time now. Me and my partner do have every week and more than once a week. I think I'm just going to keep going with the met and ac as only been taking it a week now and feeling a diffrence in my body. Finger crossed AF comes to see me in 3 or 4 weeks.

Hi just thought I'd update people on here. I've been on the AC for just under 2 weeks now and am now down to 13st 9lb :happy dance: I can't believe it. I had to do a dubble take at the scales when I saw that. Hoping AF come soon so I can start working out when I'm going to OV so me and the boyfriend can have some us time lol.

I have pcos and started agnus cactus my second cycle off bcp. I didnt find it did anything for my cycle after 3 months on it so stopped. I did notice it made my skin a bit better (i get acne on my back and a little on my face) and it got worse when i went off it

Sorry to hear that Itsy. There are other things you can try to keep the PCOS at bay. Like saw palmetto, milk thistle and chromium. You can get them from any healthy living store or ebay.

I got my ac from a naturapath and it was a liquid, it was for the whole cycle. dont know what dose. it had a few other things in it too. also had me change my diet a bit. I feel healthier but no luck with the cycles or ov'ing. Even My gyn puts me in the 'difficult to treat' category with pcos (i have pco) no insulin resistance and i am right on the line of underweight and healthy so its no supprise it didnt work for me.
Agnus cactus did work for my sister in law tho and does for many people

I have pcos and only had 2-3 af's a year, I managed to get them down to about 60 days and got my bfp the first month of taking AC (dont know for sure if it was anything to do with the AC or not though)
If you havnt had a af for ages id say try taking it for a few weeks and see what happens, if it does bring on af then you can start from there with things like cervix checking or temping to see if you can spot any patterns.
